Now Justify!


What a beautiful time to be alive.

What a fantastic opportunity we all have


Speak with no worry of the recoil,

When you speak these days, words don’t spoil.


Even if you say something that is found quite upsetting,

There is sure to be someone in the past who said much worse

Stop forgetting.


Even if you say something with lack of relevance or intellect,

There is sure to be someone with whom you don’t agree who has said dumber.

Don’t disrespect


Even if you speak in incomplete sentences and make up words,

There is sure to be a journalist who missed a comma or two.

Don’t misword.


What a beautiful time to be alive.

What a dangerous precedent our President has set.


We never have to answer to anything we say anymore,

If it’s been said before, the meaning we should ignore.


Even if you speak without having the slightest f*****g clue,

There is so much more you will say and do…

Now justify!
